Twenty single car Class 122 units were produced by Gloucester RCW in 1958. Nicknamed "Bubble Cars" due to the large expanse of glass in their construction, they were built mainly for use on the London Midland region of British Rail, with some also seeing use in Scotland. They were designed for use on a variety of lightly used branch lines - some of which were closed during the Beeching Axe but others were kept alive thanks to the low cost & simplicity in running these units.
